Today my brother and I set out to meet member case442. On the way to his house the gps took us up a narrow, winding one land road on the side of a mountain. Thankfully the road wasn't snow covered or else we would have been stuck on that road. After we got to his house I picked up a Wheel Horse C161 tractor that I had bought from him about a month ago. then we looked at all of his tractors and talked for a while. I got to see a really nice Wagner tractor that he has and his new project, a really nice Camaro.
Next we drove a few miles up the highway to look at a Sears SS16 tractor that I had been watching on CL. The roads where getting slick with a mix of snowy slush but we made it ok. The tractor wouldn't fire at all, I think the points may be bad/dirty. Overall it's in nice shape, just dirty from sitting outside for awhile. It also came with a homemade generator attachment and a nice snowplow. It also has what looks like the original seat that is in really nice shape and not cracked or ripped at all. I paid 280 for the whole package which I think is a decent price.
The plan is to get both of them running or if the won't run I'll use them for parts.
